Just got back from Lefkada. What a lovely surprise it was to find such a beautiful scenic island. I did not realise how green the island is, fauna and flora eveywhere. Nidri was an excellent choice for our resort. Good to see that there are no 'M' big macs, no fish & chips, no KFC's or subways etc. Just lots of restaurants, shops and bars on the main street and along the harbour. Prices similar to England for food and drink. They close off the road to traffic in the evening which gives a nice atmosphere while walking around. The views from the restaurants in the harbour are stunning. The Sands Hotel is just lovely, as all the reviews say, it is very close to the beach and town, but very quiet with fantastic views. The pool is a good size for a small hotel. Staff very friendly and they leave you alone. The room is clean and big enough, but the bathroom is very small. We stayed in a corner room 209 at the back, we had two sets of patio doors on to a very large shared balcony with beautiful views of the mountains on both sides. Once the other guests have had a look around by your room, they tend to stay by their own room, so not a problem. Kitchen has enough equipment for what we needed, but I would take a tea towel, dish cloth and ice cube bags if I went again. Mosies can be a problem so keep doors shut when you have the light on in the evening. Plenty of storage space for your cothes. Don't expect any luxuries and you will enjoy the hotel. All the positives far outweigh the negatives. Transport on Lekfada is very cheap, so easy to get around either by bus or ferry.
